Wow! Where to begin... We left Tintswalo Safari Lodge a few hours ago with heavy hearts (saying goodbye was very difficult), enriched souls (from the experience we relished) and a feeling of "did that all really happen"? Four days ago we took a light aircraft from Johannesburg to the airstrip 10 minutes away from the lodge and on landing were... More

Dearest Kath, These beautiful words give me goosebumps when I read them! Alistair and I absolutely loved having you and Eric with us for a few days!

Our great guide, Justin, and our unbelievable tracker, Mpho, as well as the rest of the staff, truly made the experience for us. Apart from the special location and gorgeous property, the service was exceptional and the guiding educational. There was no shortage of wildlife at all. Thank for your an unforgettable 4 days!

Our family had an exceptional experience at Tintswalo. Our guide, David, and our tracker, Eric, were very well matched for us and did an amazing job at finding game, story-telling, sharing knowledge, etc. Orlando, our butler, was always there to offer drinks and food, and the entire staff was very warm and friendly. Can't wait to return.

My wife and I just finished a thoroughly enjoyable 2 days safari at Tintswalo. We had come straight from 4 days at Sabi Sands and the game viewing was interestingly different as the animals seemed to be in bigger groups than Sabi Sands. Saw many large prides of lions, some mating, with elephant herds of up to 50 of these... More

We stayed at the Tintswalo Safari lodge this June and it was a fabulous experience. The guide was very good and we had a fantastic safari with some lovely sightings. The accommodation is very luxurious and the chef made excellent food for us. We will definitely return to Tintswalo.
